90's Couture Power Suit - 2 Piece Skirt Set
Iconic GIANNI VERSACE Couture 1990s 2 piece power suit. This one's a real find - a perfectly tailored 2 piece wool double-breasted jacket and matching skirt. The beauty of this item is in the details such as the classic "medusa" head embossed buttons, the metallic thread accents and the meticulous Italian tailoring.
This is an essential vintage Gianni Versace piece. It's nearly identical to one that was in a 1990s advertisement aside from the color and the 4 rows of buttons versus the 3 rows on our suit (see 4th photo). But everything else is the same, the silhouette, the tailored cuffs, the pockets and the medusa buttons!
Label: Gianni Versace Couture
• Vintage label size 38
• 97% wool, 3% polyester
• Made in Italy
• Both jacket and skirt are lined in 100% rayon
• Jacket has double-breasted button closure, shoulder pads, front flap waist pockets, and cuffed sleeves.
• Skirt has hidden side zip and top hook-and-eye closure.
Fantastic condition, however the only "flaw" (if you can even call it that) is that the bottom row of buttons on the jacket are a tiny bit smaller than the top 2 rows. This is because the jacket was missing these buttons and I had to replace those two bottom ones with the 2 "extra" buttons that came with the suit. Again, this is something I noticed only because I sewed them on myself, and you can compare the button sizes in the last photo.
